If they both are top notch pitchers and have reasonably favorable matchups, I think you should start both of them, because it's impossible to figure out which one will get a win, and even if you get a win and a loss, you still wind up with 5 points, which is more than you'd get by benching them both.

In a roto league, I'd bench both Contreras and Lowe going against strong opponents, but in a points league, a pitcher getting lit up doesn't really hurt much at all and you have the chance at getting big points for a win. In your type of league, start all four of them.

I'd start Clemens and bench everyone else. If you really want to gamble, then start Contreras as well.
